For the past month, we’ve been telling you about our holiday party with Made + Remade and HGTV.com’s Design Happens bloggers. We painted our nails (before we built the benches, of course), hung the stockings, stocked the bar, set the table, served simple desserts and much more.

Oh, and how could I forget Liz’s sugared cranberries? Instead of visions of sugar plums dancing it my head, I’ve got these things. Yum.
